As the years go by, age can start to show itself on your face in a number of ways. Restylane® and Juvederm® are injectable fillers that can solve a variety of facial cosmetic issues including filling lips and smoothing wrinkles. These hyaluronic acid–based fillers are great for plumping up the skin and lips while eliminating wrinkles, giving you a younger, healthier look. This fast-acting treatment gives you immediate results that last for quite a while.
How Do These Fillers Work?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in your skin. Restylane® and Juvederm® are hyaluronic acid-based fillers, allowing it to bond easily once injected. The water found in this acid adds immediate volume to your skin, which will lift it while smoothing wrinkles. More water will come to the area that the hyaluronic acid is injected, helping your skin to preserve the recently gained volume.
You can expect the total treatment time to range from just a few minutes up to half an hour. An ultra-fine needle is used to inject the filler in areas predetermined when making your personalized treatment plan.
Some improvement will be seen immediately after your treatment. Full results can be expected in roughly one week. These fillers are not permanent but can give you improvement that lasts anywhere from six to nine months.
Where Is Restylane® Used?
There are several fillers available at FACE, all designed to help with different areas of concern. They all work similarly due to the fact that they are hyaluronic acid-based fillers, but are tweaked to target the specific problem. Areas that can be treated with this filler are:
- Wrinkles around the nose and mouth
- Lips (lip augmentation)
- Cheeks (cheek augmentation)
- Tear troughs (dark circles under the eyes)
Who Is a Good Candidate for Dermal Filler Treatments?
